May 28th is my mom's birthday. So Noelle was scheduled to be delivered on May 29th. She was breech and had to be delivered by cesarean. My kids are not known for respecting schedules. Noelle Madison Larson was born at 4:52 am on May 28th. She was born in Waterloo, Iowa, weighing 7 pounds and 13 and 1/2 ounces. On September 5, 1996, I wrote, "Noelle is a dream baby. She sleeps all night. She talks and smiles lots, especially for dad. Everyone thinks she has red hair and looks like me."

Happy Birthday to both Noelle and your mom. Seems kinda weird that I met your mom so long ago, but never your daughter! I think we got together two or three times when Jake was a baby. We must have both been expecting our first daughters when we saw you last. I think the last time was when you came to Mankato to do a discovery toys party.

I was just thinking about that visit the other day because I had purchased a little safari jeep thing with four little animals in the trailer. All that is left is the jeep, the gorilla, and a couple of the fence rails from the trailer. Somehow John and I got on the subject of how it originally came and I looked for a photo on line. But, alas, to no avail. I guess it was too long ago.

Hope Noelle had a great day.
